CALLS PLAN IMPRACTICABLE To Photograph Mars Through Giant Telescope Barrel Cambridge, Mass., Sept. 7. Plans of B. McAfee, an American scientist in London, in collaboration with Profes sor David Todd for taking photographs of Mars as if the planet were little more than a mile and a half away through a mine shaft in Chile as a giant telescope barrel are "impractka t.lo .n,l nfTsr no noasibilitr of success" in the opinion of Professor Solon I. Bailey of the Harvard observatory. It"is true that stars can be seen in daylight from the bottom of a mine or a well, just as we can see mem through a 'telescope even in a thunder storm, Professor Bailey said, "but the idea of using a mine shaft in conjunc tion with a big dish of mercury to make Mars appear a mile or two away is preposterous. I have no faith in the idea. It is a fooliah, wild scheme." WATERBURY Are You Running Down and gradually losing your strength and vitality! Is your blood getting thin, and are you becoming nervous, ana when you get up in the morning are you as tired as when you went to bed ? These are symptoms of neurasthenia, and deranged stomach. The frequent causes of this "condition are overwork and worry. First of all you must set your stom ach, to rights, and correct the serious disturbances, such as Indigestion, con stipation, and at the same time flush the kidneys and make the liver active. To accomplish this result you cannot take a more reliable and better remedy than the good old standby SEVEN BARKS made from the extracts of roots and herbs. It has been recog nized as a standard remedy for stom ach, kidney and livfcr troubles for near ly 50 years. There is hardly a family but what some member is more or less fre quently troubled with biliousness, in digestion, liver or kidney trouble. If you have never tried SEVEN BARKS do not fail to do so, and watch the wonderful results. Get t the root of all stomach trou bles by driving all poisons out of your system for good. You can do thw by taking nature's remedy, SEVEN BARKS. One bottle at a small cost wilt prove Its value. Ask your nearest druggist for it to-day. Adv.
